Sire For Pleasure hardly needs further explanation; he won Olympic team gold with both Lars Nieberg and Marcus Ehning and became one of the most influential showjumping sires of all time. With progeny such as Fit For Fun (Luciana Diniz), Funky Fred (Marcus Ehning), For Joy van ‘t Zorgvliet HDC (Kevin Staut), For Felicila (Pedro Veniss), et cetera, For Pleasure is still represented at the highest level on a weekly basis. .
At the Olympic Games in Atlanta and Sidney not only For Pleasure participated, ridden by Jos Lansink the legendary Carthago took part in both Olympics as well. This world-famous sire is the grandsire to For Treasure VDL and adds some extra scope. Further on, For Pleasure VDL’s pedigree o goes back to the influential stallions Ramiro, Jasper and the thoroughbred Lucky Boy.
Although For Treasure VDL earned his breeding license in Vechta, he has Dutch roots. He is bred out of the mare Carthana Z, who descends from the KWPN mare Lamira. Carthana Z already produced the successful 1.50m showjumper Engelien ridden by Dave Maarse and nowadays Germany’s Tobias Thoenes. For Treasure VDL also descends from the damline of the Grand Prix showjumper Anemone’s Vicky of Karim El Zoghby and Mark Bluman and of the 1.60m-classified Onimo.
The very promising For Treasure VDL seems to be an asset for the future with his complete pedigree, modern stallion appearance and unlimited scope.
At the Oldenburger Stallion Show, For Treasure was the talk of the town and it did not take long or far beyond Vechta everyone spoke full of praise about this son of For Pleasure. The impressive grey stallion showed unlimited scope, a fantastic technique and super overview during jumping. He was chosen as the Reservesieger of the Oldenburger Stallion Aprovals. For Treasure also lived up to expectations during his stalliontest. In Adelheidsdorf he succeeded with a final score of 9.3 for jumping, among other things he received a 10 for his talent as a show jumper.
